Creating gradient inside shapes

Recommended Posts

I am trying to create a rounded rectangle filled with a gradient (for use as a sign up button). I have created the rounded rectangle inside the canvas and colored it in full orange using the paint bucket tool. When I try to apply the gradient, the entire canvas gets the gradient, not the rounded rectangle portion of the canvas alone. How do I get the gradient to apply only on the rounded rectangle? Alternatively, are there other ways of creating a rounded rectangle filled with a gradient?

Thanks! That worked and I am able to get the gradient to fill just the rounded rectangle.

This has created another issue. :)

My gradient goes from white to orange. I am using an orange line to convey the borders of the rounded rectangle. The orange line borders the straight edges but not the rounded corners. How can I draw the rounded corners in orange?

(I have tried using the paint brush tool in high magnification to draw the rounded corners but the corners come out jagged.)
